Four friends and I booked the entire riad (3 rooms). We were made to feel very welcome, not at all like "hotel" guests, but friends. Atika who runs the operations for Stephen & Bruno was efficient and always smiling, and also very willing to share with us information about modern Morocco and their lifestyle etc. It can often be difficult when travelling to find a local person with whom ot have a proper conversation, and so she proved a real bonus. Stephen was also on hand in the mornings to offer advice on sightseeing, places to eat etc.
The riad is beautifully appointed, with down pillows and luxury bedding. It's also easy to locate after a day wandering the Medina. Although it may cost a bit more than other riads, they include airport or train transfers and plenty of bottled water was on hand. The breakfasts (see photo) were also much better than others I have had in Morocco, with fresh cooked omelet or eggs on offer with various breads, pancakes and the most tasty home made jams.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Riad n°9 is an 18th century bourgeois residence that has been reincarnated as a boutigue bed and breakfast. The decisive factor in purchasing the property was the roof terrace which has sweeping views over the medina. Riad n°9 was originally purchased as a vacation home in 1999 and underwent a 3-year restoration process. We uncovered all the original 18th century mosaics, carved wood and plaster and hand-painted wood. In 2007, we opened to the public and changed nothing believing guests would appreciate the "personal" touches throughout. Our philosophy is to offer guests the possibility of appropriating the space for themselves and experiencing what an authentic medina home feels like. ... more less
